HVAC Contractor Requirement

Under the Nebraska Contractor Registration Act, anyone who wants to be a contractor, regardless of trade, must register with the Nebraska Department of Labor.

To register, you need to submit a Certificate of Worker’s Compensation Insurance.

Note that this registration has nothing to do with your certification as an HVAC professional.

As such, you don’t need to pass a trade exam to become a contractor.

EPA Certification

As an HVAC technician, you will most likely work and service equipment with refrigerants.

As such, you’re required by federal law to obtain the EPA Section 608 Technician Certification.

It has four types that you can get certified for depending on the type of equipment you’ll be working with.

Learn more about it in detail in our guide to the EPA certification.

Local-level Licensing

Despite not having a state-level HVAC license, some localities will require and issue one.

For example, Omaha and Lincoln will require it before you can start working in the industry.

Because of this, you should check with the locality where you’ll be working if they have such regulations.
